The Dallington Journey             

'The joy and reward of lifelong learning take time.  That time is called childhood, spent with people who understand and value it, in a stimulating environment that promotes it.' Mogg Hercules MBE

At Dallington, our ethos is to ensure that every child enjoys a child-centred, creative, holistic and ambitious education, designed to develop the whole, unique child and prepare them for their onward educational journey.

We offer a widely creative, topic-based curriculum which is broad and balanced.  We encourage our children to be curious and to become confident and enthusiastic learners.  Great emphasis is placed on nurturing the development of the powers of reasoning and reflective, critical thinking in an environment where children can openly relate to others and expect to be listened to and respected for their points of view.

Dallington is a friendly, open, family school in which children develop self-confidence and feel a great sense of belonging. We nurture active learning, inquisitiveness and natural progression.  The child is at the centre of everything we do.

 'Value your own worth and understand the differences in others.'    School motto
